    How does the approver (non-user) who denies a submission add comments as to why it was denied?

    Also, Once the submitter clicks on "Edit the submission here: {edit_link}", how do I make it so an email is sent to the approver to re-evaluate the updated submission?

    To my understanding, here's how the Approval element of the Approval Flow of your form is set up.


    The Approver Email Address is set to an email address that does not have a Jotform account and the Require login for approver option is not checked.

    To meet your requirements, please make sure that these options are enabled under the Advanced tab of the Approval element properties.


    As for your other concern, I have moved it to a new ticket considering it is about another topic.
